Getting Data In

Can you help me with a source type issue involving advanced parameters?



I need to create a source type from a log file in an attachment.
But, when I upload the file, I have a result like below:

x00-\x00+\x00+\x00-\x00 \x00C\x00:\x00

what is the problem please???

This is mostly due to character encoding. If you know that what type of character set is present in your log file then you can use CHARSET parameter in props.conf, more documentation

You are most likely having the issue described at How do I remove \x00 characters from my log message?

I used the solution prescribed by @JSapienza in props.conf of the indexers and it worked perfectly fine -

SEDCMD-StripNULL= s/\x00//g

Please let us know.
